Our Pledge To You

Vote Yes!Over these past few weeks, we have heard from many of you who have shared your suggestions, concerns and ideas. We’re listening!

Regardless of what happens at the ballot box tomorrow, SOS isn’t going to drop the ball. We pledge to:

  • continue to work to find long-term solutions to our budget crisis.
  • promote deep and thoughtful dialogue between our schools and our community.
  • continue our lobbying efforts at the state and federal level.
  • keep you informed about the schools’ spending and budgeting process.
  • advocate for “benchmarking” efforts to compare our schools with similar districts.
  • promote an “open door” policy within our school system that welcomes the entire community

Most important, we want our district to have the best and most cost-efficient schools possible.

We have some big fiscal challenges ahead of us. Thankfully, we also have a community that is committed to solving these problems. It’s time to redirect the tremendous energy we see in our towns towards finding long-term solutions.

Now It’s Your Turn

Tomorrow we want to be able to stand up as community and send the message that excellent schools are a top priority in our towns. To do that, we need an overwhelming turnout of voters supporting this override. That means every single school supporter needs to make it to the polls. Vote before work. Vote before baseball or soccer or lacrosse. Vote before dinner.

And, Finally, Thanks

It’s been an honor and a responsibility to have such a wide and thoughtful audience. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the discussion. Thank you for listening and thank you for participating.

Please vote on Thursday to support our schools. Remember, we need each and every vote.

Wenham voters: Buker School, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Hamilton voters: Winthrop School, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
